Sticky Business....

Tessie decided that it would be a good idea for me to "borrow" one of Zar's LED lights until I can find the supplies to make the chandelier for the cottage.

Zar isn't too happy, but I am.  Now I can see in there at night.

The whole thing started on a trip to Walmart this morning...

I found something that I am going to buy more of if I can.
One of these Velcro heavy duty glue dots is what I used to hang the light.  It worked like a charm!

I got 80 of them for $2.00.  They were on clearance.  I am going to go back and get the last two packages.

They are paper thin...The paper that you see has a dot between two thicknesses.  The dot itself is only about 3/8" wide and circular.

As soon as I put the light in place it was there to stay.  Hopefully I will be able to get it down when I want to install the chandelier, without too much trouble.
Right next to those, were these mini Velcro pieces.  They were also on clearance.  I am hoping that only Walmart is discontinuing them.  These are sticky back Velcro.  They are triangular and probably could be cut in several pieces.  The advantage is, they are reallllly thin.  Almost like the thickness of card stock.

I haven't tried them yet, but I will as soon as I find something to try them on.

I can see them as something to use in all kind of mini situations.

I will let you know how well they work. 

I am counting my morning shopping as a success just because of these two products....Hopefully, I will be able to find more when I run out.

Walmart also carries the second product in an oval shape slightly larger.  Those weren't on clearance.  So...At least I will be able to get a similar product.

I am going now to see how many things I can stick together with this stuff before they come and take me away for insanely playing with sticky stuff....I imagine I will have fingers and toes stuck together before I am finished.

See you tomorrow.

I have glue dots... I use them in my greeting cards I make. Never, ever would thought to use to hang up lites!!! Thanks for the heads up.

Lady Jane, these are not regular scrap booking glue dots. They are extra strength. I don't know if the regular ones would work in this application. The lamp is pretty heavy!

Giac, thanks for the heads up! I will be very careful to hide them when I'm done....if there are any left....
